Our Seminars

US Colleges Seminar

Cost: Free

This seminar is intended for anyone interested in learning more about attending a US college. We will provide a complete overview of the entire application process, revealing the inside knowledge of what it takes to get into some of the best schools. The seminar will also cover athletic recruiting into US colleges for students in Canada. Both students and parents are welcome to attend the seminar.

The application procedure for US colleges is often overwhelming, especially for Canadians unfamiliar with the process. Most Canadian universities have a simplified application with the admissions decision almost solely based on grade 12 averages. In comparison, top US colleges like the Ivy League schools take a holistic approach to evaluating students, taking into consideration the students' grades, SAT and ACT scores, extra-curricular activities and college essays. In this seminar, we will reveal the details that make or break an application.

The "US College Admissions" Seminar will cover the following topics:

  • College admissions timeline
  • How to choose a school
  • Admissions strategies
  • Break-down of the application
  • Personal essays
  • SAT / ACT Standardized Tests
  • The interview
  • Financial aid
  • Athletic recruiting


Athletic Recruiting

Cost: Free

High school athletes often assume that, if they are talented enough, colleges will find them and offer them a scholarship. As a result, they often wait passively for schools to approach them. The truth is, though, that many colleges lack the resources to thoroughly scout athletic talent, especially in the case of US colleges looking for Canadian athletes. This passive approach can hurt one's chance of getting into an ideal program.

This seminar is run by Student Athlete Planning Services, a partner of Ivy Global, and helps young athletes and their parents to successfully handle the recruitment process by treating it as they would a job search. We teach students how to select the schools which are best for them and to proactively market themselves. Attending an Ivy Global seminar is a vital first step in finding success as a student athlete, both students and parents are welcome.

The seminar will cover:

  1. An overview of NCAA rules
  2. How to be pro-active in the recruiting process
  3. How to target the right schools
  4. How to market yourself
  5. How to evaluate programs of interest
  6. Athletic scholarships and financial aid
  7. How to plan your academics and ultimately, your career

 

New SAT Simulated Test

Cost: Free

We are offering students who are planning to take the new SAT in 2016 a full length diagnostic practice test to help them get ready for the important exam. They will be tested under the same conditions as the actual exam. Students will receive a score report and get a clearer picture of their strengths and weaknesses.

 

PSAT Simulated Test

Cost: Free

We are offering students who are planning to take the new PSAT in 2015 a full length diagnostic practice test to help them get ready for the important exam. They will be tested under the same conditions as the actual exam. Students will receive a score report and get a clearer picture of their strengths and weaknesses.

 

SAT Workshop

Cost: $300+HST

The SAT Prep Workshop is geared towards students who do not have the time to take a full-length SAT class or who have an upcoming SAT exam they would like to get ready for. The workshop provides an introduction to the SAT, general tips and strategies, and will cover all 3 parts of SATs (critical reading, writing and math).

As part of the workshop, the students will take a mini-SAT diagnostic test and will be issued a score report at the end of the session. The instructor will also provide a study roadmap for students in how to further study for the SATs on their own. The Barron's SAT book, College Board SAT book and Ivy Global SAT Student Guide will be given to each student and are included in the cost of the workshop.

 

PSAT Workshop

Cost: $350+HST

The PSAT Workshop is geared towards students who would like an introduction to the PSAT exam before taking it in October. The 1-day workshop will run from 9am-4pm with a 30 minute lunch break and will include an introduction to the PSAT, general tips and strategies to cover all parts of the exam.

As part of the workshop, the students will take a mini-PSAT diagnostic test and will be issued a score report at the end of the session. The instructor will also provide a study roadmap for students in how to further study for the PSATs on their own.

 

Recruiting Workshop

Cost: $300+HST

Our Athletic Recruitment Workshop is a half day workshop designed for the student-athlete who would like to continue playing at the collegiate level in the US or Canada. Less than 2% of high school athletes get recruited simply by playing their sport. The remaining 98% must take a more proactive approach to achieve their athletic and academic goals.

The workshop is run by Student Athlete Planning Services, a company founded by Phil David, who is an MBA graduate in Marketing and a seasoned, Advanced Level head coach at the Junior A, AAA and Pro levels. He has mentored many student-athletes who have progressed to the NCAA, Major Junior and Pro ranks, including current NHL players Wayne Simmonds (LA Kings) and Chris Stewart (Colorado Avalanche). Through his M.A.P. workbook (My Action Plan), he will navigate students step-by-step through the athletic recruiting process and give extensive lessons in:

  • Athletic Planning
  • Academic Planning
  • Financial Planning (Scholarships and Aid)
  • School and Team Search
  • Building an Athletic Resume
  • How to Market Yourself
  • Taking the SATs
  • Navigating NCAA Rules

At the end of the workshop, students will gain a very specific action plan for targeting their best-fit schools and teams to ensure they don't miss a step along the way. The M.A.P. workbook is included in the cost of the workshop.
